Formative Years Learning Center is a private, non-sectarian preschool serving the need for professional early childhood education and care to the center city community for more than 25 years.
We are an active member of our community and our students learn directly what it means to be a "good neighbor".
Our program is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6 years.
We offer multi-age, multi-cultural groupings and an open-education program that is individually geared to each child's interests and abilities.
We maintain a limited enrollment and small teacher-to-child ratios in order to provide an optimal learning experience for all of our students.
We provide a creative learning environment that is safe, comfortable and specifically designed for children.
Our goal is to ensure that each child receives a happy, secure start in their growth as creative individuals.
